With the fairways still wet and the cold breeze blowing, only the very hardy took to the fairways for a stroke event last Saturday at Stanthorpe. The day was sponsored by the club’s greenkeeper and member, Bill Pyne, and we thank him for the trophies and the snacks on the day.
With a small field for the ladies event, it was decided to hold over the prizes for a later date. Those who did play for sweepstakes, best three scores were very close with Marie Cook best on nett 82 followed by Nikki Waterworth on nett 83 then Kay Webb on nett 84. Marie Cook had best pin shot at 3 and Nikki Waterworth had best approach at 12.
The men’s event was a close finish with two players tied on nett 72. The count back went in favour of Darryl Boekholt for first prize and Alan Kerr collected the runner up prize.
The men’s pin shots went to Cal Smith at 3, Keith Jones at 12 and Alan Kerr at 17. Pro-pins were claimed by Matt Waterworth at 1/10, Scott Constable at 5/14 and Darryl Boekholt at 9/18.
The birdies’ nest, which has been unclaimed the last few weeks, finally was collected. Marie Cook birdied at the 5th hole the clam the prize.
Next Saturday is an individual stableford sponsored by club member, Max Hunter. Hopefully the fairways will be a bit drier. Tee off from 11.00 am and players are asked to register well befor their tee off time.
